Within the past months, Drake has been doing wonders on the Billboard charts. He recently earned his 11th #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart, tied with Lil Wayne for most tracks charted simultaneously, and also broke the digital sales record with ‘Nothing Was The Same’. With all those accolades, Drake adds another as he has now broken the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay Record.
This week as “Hold On, We’re Going Home” rises 2-1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart, Drake breaks the record. He was previously tied with Usher with 12 songs and has now surpassed him with 13 chart-toppers. “Heavy airplay all day.” Drake ain’t never told no lie!
“Hold On, We’re Going Home” (featuring Majid Jordan) (No. 5 on the Hot 100) steps 2-1 on the Nielsen BDS-based R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, where it’s Drake’s record-breaking 13th No. 1. The singer/rapper was previously tied with Usher (with 12) for the most chart-toppers in the ranking’s 21-year history.
Drake becomes the first lead act this year to top R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay with a pair of songs. His “Started From the Bottom” led for one week in April.
